Did you know that our skin is the body’s largest organ? It contains over 7 million pores and loses 2 to 3 billion dead skin cells from the surface every day. It is our first defence against injury, dehydration, infection and variations in temperature. It makes sense to look after our skin.
At McArthur Skincare we believe some natural ingredients greatly assist in maintaining healthy looking skin, including:
Pawpaw – Abundant in anti-oxidants due to very high levels of vitamin A, C and E.
Jojoba oil – Absorbs very well and is an excellent moisturising agent for the skin. Reduces water loss and has the added benefit of being suitable for people with oily skin.
Sweet almond oil – Penetrates quickly and is an excellent moisturiser for the skin.
Avocado – Contains very high levels of vitamins A, D, and E which is great for soft, smooth skin.
Argan oil – Contains high levels of vitamin E, essential fatty acids and carotenes.
Olive oil – Very moisturising and gentle which makes skin irritations rarer.
Now for some of the chemicals or other products that based on our research our skin can best do without, and that we do not use in our products:
Sodium lauryl sulphate and sodium laureth sulphate – Commonly used chemicals in some skincare products. These chemicals can dry the skin and can cause irritations on
Parabens – Different forms of parabens are often used as preservatives and are commonly found in skincare products. They may cause rashes and other allergic reactions.
Petrochemicals (ie mineral oil) – Creates a barrier that covers the skin, which can prevent the natural release of toxins and waste.
McArthur Skincare is proud to provide a range of skincare products containing only natural ingredients. All our products contain the McArthur Pawpaw Extract™, as well as jojoba oil, sweet almond oil and olive oil in selected products.
